Dr. Carse Ramos

  • Associate Professor

Carse Ramos is an Assistant Professor of Sociology and Rhode Island College, where she also teaches in the INGOS program. Before coming to RIC, Dr. Ramos was the primary research consultant for the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law’s Atrocity Prevention Legal Training Project and an External Lecturer on Minority Rights at ELTE University in Budapest. She earned her Ph.D. in Anthropology and Sociology of Development at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva, where her dissertation focused on Uganda’s transitional justice policy and its mechanisms for navigating the overlapping victim-perpetrator spaces occupied by former child conscripts. Prior to this, Dr. Ramos completed an MA in Nationalism Studies at Central European University and earned her JD from Cardozo Law with a concentration in International Law and Human Rights. Her research is located at the nexus between atrocity prevention, legal spaces, transitional justice and social memory, with a particular lens on victimhood designation processes. She is currently working on two projects, one the adjudication of socialization processes in international criminal trials and the other on memory politics in several countries. Dr. Ramos has been working, researching, and travelling in the African Great Lakes region since 2008 and escapes to Budapest, New York, and Sarajevo whenever life allows.
